On October 10, 2009, at the Project Management Institute’s Global Congress North America 2009, Cadence Management Corporation was awarded the Continuing Professional Education Provider of the Year award. For Cadence, this award underscores the power of the Cadence Methodology, and it supports the results our clients and practitioners have experienced for nearly three decades. But, we didn’t seek out this award for the kudos.

The Importance of Recognition

The award panel thoroughly investigated the training operation that supports our Project Management course in every critical area, from course development to course outcomes to student retention and application of skills to real-world projects. The panel dug deeply into both the philosophy behind the Cadence Methodology, and the core practical skills delivered in Cadence training. They interviewed Cadence clients to hold our own internal data up to real-world project results to ensure that our findings are grounded in reality.

The essence of our methodology is deceivingly simple: we help teams maintain focus on getting their projects done. We have worked intimately with the Project Management Institute and the Project Management Body of Knowledge as the globally accepted standard of best practices in the field, and our role is to teach teams how and when to apply those best practices based on the size, risk and complexity of the project at hand.

What the award panel discovered — and what so many teams around the world have shared over the years as well — is that project managers and teams trained in the Cadence approach to project management deliver even their most challenging projects faster, with greater confidence and control than ever before.

Our Project Management DNA

The Cadence Project Management training is at the core of the entire catalog of Cadence courses. It provides the backbone to our management courses, our executive training, our program management and personal skills courses, and so many more. We are proud to say attendees at all levels of the organization across disciplines are receiving the same award-winning methodology, the same Cadence mark of quality.

This award goes to the thousands of project managers and team members, the hundreds of sponsors and steering committees, and all our clients and partners who diligently apply what we teach to produce stunning business results for their companies. They have trusted Cadence for many years help them find practical, repeatable success through project management.

And to the Project Management Institute, we give thanks not only for this recognition, but to so many years of leadership and innovation in our field, and for providing such a rich platform for research and development that supports project managers around the world in delivering stunning project results.
